We were visiting the area from Durham and The Castle Inn had been recommended, we were not disappointed.The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was excellent., fresh, extremely well cooked and very tasty. The whole ambience of The Castle Inn is 5 Star, also excellent value for money

This is fun,family friendly pub with an excellent menu.It is very popular with locals; and has a garden with lovely views of the Purbecks The front outside area is to be avoided because the busy,noisy A351 runs just in front.

Arrived late one evening and very hungry. Had an excellent steak & ale pie and mushroom stroganoff - very satisfied. Beer was good too. Very friendly bar staff who couldn't be more helpful. Highly recommended, for very good pub food at a reasonable price. Quirky interior!

We found this Inn whilst on holuday in Dorset. We were staying at a cottage only a minute away, so we went to the castle a lot. My first and favourite meal at the Inn was their sausages and chips.

Excellent service, arrived without a booking, all tables were booked, but they created some space for us. Had excellent meal, with some decent real ale.

Thanks for the review, great to hear that among other things we are smelling good! The Jurassic Ale is from the Dorset Brewing Co., a local micro brewery who are fast becoming renowned for their fine ales. Look forward to seeing you next time you visit. More

The food was excellent, the cost reasonable, served in an intimate atmosphere,not much to dislike, as an observation the coffee could improve with the provision of fresh cream and sugar, (unfortunately it seems to be the trend these days for restaurants to serve coffee with cream in a plastic sealed pot and sugar straws) that said it was good value...
